Damn! This is really cool. I just hope that the blue cover will not turn black from dirt by the time the subway opens.

IMO, it`s for noise reduction and water resistance.

I think that it`s very important for that blue material to be non-flammable.

I won`t be surprised if they have chosen unsuitable one.

I have been to Sofia two weeks ago for the firts time and was kind of surprised,in both ways. :-) I love the metro...

I would like to know, how many train units are in service and in which colour sheme they are, since I have noticed old units, which are known for me from Prague, as well Rusich units. How many coaches does each unit have?

Thank you good souls for telling me. Blagodarja.

BTW: Does anybody have technical drawing of Rusich train?

Ianto,

Can you tell us in what way Sofia surprised you? I am really curious. You can be totally honest with us.

The contract for the funding of second metro lineto be signed tomorrow

The total project costs are 185.2 mln EUR, 5 metro stations. The project will be partially funded by the EU.

Quote:
Оперативното споразумение между Управляващия орган на ОП „Транспорт” и бенефициента „Метрополитен” ще бъде подписано утре, 28 май.

Това ще се случи в конферентната зала на Министерството на транспорта.

Споразумението осигурява юридическата рамка на взаимоотношенията между бенефициента, като получател на безвъзмездна финансова помощ от ЕС и Управляващия орган като институция, която ще управлява и контролира помощта от ОП „Транспорт”.

Документът ще бъде подписан в присъствието на министъра на транспорта Петър Мутафчиев.

Веднага след парафирането на споразумението ще бъде подписан и договора за изпълнение на инженерно-консултантски услуги при проектирането и строителството на втория диаметър на метрото в София.

Разширението се касае за участъка „Пътен възел Надежда – Централна жп гара – пл. Света Неделя – НДК – бул. Черни Връх”.

Изпълнител на проекта е консорциума „Систра - Инфрапроект консулт - Метроконсулт БГ”.

Бюджетът на проекта, заложен в програмата е на стойност 185,19 млн. евро. Проектът е предвиден за съ-финансиране от Европейския фонд за регионално развитие.

Thank you for information...:-)

Well, to start with, I am kind of fan of Balkan states, I have been to Bulgarian Black sea coast two times and now it was time to visit Sofia, even because of my interest in public transport and metro.
And my impressions?

Great Vitosha mountain over the city, a lot of green trees everywhere, a lot of cars, a lot of dust, kind of street chaos in the centre when I was crossing the street near Sofia City Centre...:-) I mean a lot of pedestrians on the street between cars, even the green man was iluminated...:-)
Horrible ride with tram no 12 with something "hairy", smoking man, driving the tram with all that smell going to the salon throug open door. We were like sitting in the coach on roallercoaster, wondering what will happen...:-)... If the second part of the tram dissaper...
In my opinon we saw just few homeless, even no drug addicted, mostly poor ppl were selling flowers, playing some instrument, or with the personal scale waiting for customers.
Amazing atmosphere on the bridge near NDK during the Nescafe promotion, laud music, kind youngsters...the second point, imho Sofia is very young city...many people were able to speak English with us...remember great waitress in one pizzeria on the Patriarh Eftimi Blvd...
I hope, that those ugly, destroyed buildings in the centre will be recontructed, but I know that the proces is slow and money demanding.

Even we had to visit an emergency with eye in Bialo More, kind english speaking young woman doctor...:-) ugly hospital with ugly toilet!

And my target...Metro!
I knew before I will see old russian stock, and rusich type, I rode with rusich. The stations are clean, a way bit dark imho, but great experience, since It is very exotic to be in metro abroad for me. People vere strange at us, or, we were strange, with taking photos in the train...:-)

I am remebering the trip very much, good beer, good food, low prices...and I am definitely visitig Sofia again soon, after the new part of metro opens...

Ad Turnovec:

I found that drawing as well, but it is king of not updated, since there are three windows between pair of door and not two according the picture...anyway, thank you for help..:-)

Yunak is near the National stadium "Vasil Levski".

When I was in Sofia I missed the opportunity to buy the book about your metro, which I saw on the official web pages of metropolitan, so I wrote e-mail to them, how can I obtain the book via post. They replied, but unfortunately they sent only half of an email, so I didnt get any info but the beginning...:-( I wrote them again and with no aswer at all...:-(
Is the book worth of it? I´d love to have it...:-) So if anyone can help...
It seems I have to take plane again and buy it on my own...

It is sad what is happening, but Sofia NEEDS the metro...we can't stop the works...what the municipality needs to do is to secure the Military Club

Yes you are right, but Sofia needs the overground, don't of underground. In Dubai construction overground, Tokyo too have overground.
The construction of underground already is unmodern.

Is that so? I was unaware of that. So are we building it cause it's modern or are we building it cause we are trying to solve traffic problems, which can only be solved by an underground railway?
Screw that monument. We have lots of them. It must be in a very poor condition since the vibrations are causing so many problems. That means that the first earthquake over 4 on the richter scale will totally dfemolish it. So in that case that guy should explain why is the building in this condition, not squeal to stop the works!!
